Editorial Reviews

Often regarded as the period in which The Rolling Stones recorded the finest music of their career, the years during which Mick Taylor was the fifth Stone remain the band s Golden Age . Notably, on albums Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street the Stones sound changed as they developed new ideas and were informed by a range of new influences. But crucially it was Taylor s sophisticated blues and jazz licks that gave The Rolling Stones an added dimension between 1969 and 1974 one they lacked both before and afterwards. This dynamic film tells the behind the scenes story of this hugely productive era for the group. Featuring interviews with Taylor himself and further contributions from his old boss, John Mayall; author and group colleague, Robert Greenfield; Village Voice music editor, Robert Christgau; Stones session musicians, Al Perkins and Bill Plummer; highly regarded UK music critic, Barney Hoskyns and many others. The program also includes liberal performance footage of The Stones, archive footage and interviews, numerous seldom seen photographs and a host of other features.

2.0 out of 5 stars generic, recycled, and lacking performance footage July 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
I got this the day it came out (July 27th) in hopes that it would have rare Mick Taylor era Stones performances that most of us aren't already familiar with.

In reality, this DVD turned out to be a patchwork of lame interviews - mostly from people you don't care about. There are some interesting interview segments with musicians like John Mayall, Bill Plummer and Al Perkins,......but the bulk of the interviews are with these annoying English turds that mean nothing to most of us. Excepting the details from L.A. session musicians (which are probably only interesting to us musicians out there), the bulk of the interviews are just the re-telling of stories that most Stones fans have already heard a million times.

There is very little performance, in fact the bulk of the "fill in" music behind the interviews is this generic garbage intended to sound like the stones (it's not even the Stones providing the bulk of the backing interview soundtrack). There are a couple rare performance clips from the Taylor years,....but they show 10 seconds of it, and then they quickly cut back to the annoying English turds telling stories that we've already heard a million times.

It seems to me that this DVD was thrown together in a hurry, in order to profit off the current Exile re-release hype - as a companion to the "stones in exile" DVD. In fact, many of these same stories were just told on the "stones in exile" DVD release (which is a million times better than this DVD release). The whole thing seems generic, and very cheaply thrown together - with no involvement from the Stones. It's almost bootleggish, not in video quality, but rather the incredibly low budget production of the entire product.

I am a diehard Stones fan,...

1.0 out of 5 stars ..Bloody Awful' August 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
If you have never seen or heard of the Rolling Stones you might be able to sit thru this. Otherwise this is one of those fake paste up jobs that mostly only sell on Amazon. It's all pieced together footage from the public domain and still images from the other 100 Stones books. The worst part are the narrators. A bunch of cheesy old has beens in search of a payday. And to a one they are bloody awful, at both reading and speaking. The one old ungroomed fart actualy....talks..... about......this.....fast....for....quite.......some........time. We see a 20 second clip of Mick Taylor speaking. That's about it for him. .Poor John Mayall narrates a bit and is as interesting as yesterdays coffee cup. No one deserves to steal your money like this. If you must have it, please find someplace to rip it for free on line. I think I will have a look at Amazons return policy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Through The Past, Smartly February 27, 2013
For those who arrived at the party rather late - meaning the first new Stones record you ever bought had a big red tongue splayed across its label - the five years and ninety-nine minutes contained within "Rolling Stones: The Mick Taylor Years" will serve as a more than welcome addition to all of your recently-acquired "Exile On Main St." collectables. In fact, should you consider yourself a part of the ever-expanding constituency who swear the Stones' best work was done during that half decade between the death of Brian Jones and the arrival of Ronnie Wood, this is one documentary which absolutely deserves your undivided attention.

Beginning as the Sixties became the Seventies and The Rolling Stones were struggling to grow all the way from "England's Newest Hit Makers" into "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band," we hear the entire journey recounted by an impressive list of Stones biographers, historians and even session musicians, plus see the events themselves unfold via clips from the band's initial, free Hyde Park concert with Taylor clear through their landmark 1969 and 1972 North American tours. Not to mention a slew of primordial promotional clips spanning "Jumpin' Jack Flash" to "It's Only Rock `n Roll" which cover, in fact, a defining era in the Stones' development as the band survives Altamont, Allen Klein, and the death of its founding member only to find themselves tax-exiled and semi-comatose in the south of France. It is a period during which they also somehow start their own record company, learn how to MAKE their own records (thanks in no small part to their late, extremely great producer Jimmy Miller) and along with The Who and Led Zeppelin forge the soon-to-become fantastically lucrative U.S. arena-rock circuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good - actually November 3, 2010
By Dave
This is a really interesting and considered film covering the period from Beggars' Banquet and Brian Jones' demise, through Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St., Goat's Head Soup and It's Only Rock n Roll.
Before watching this I hadn't been fully aware of how much of an impact Mick Taylor had on the Stones in this period. The film includes some interview excerpts from Mick Taylor himself, along with some very knowledgable and connected contributors. Robert Christgau of the Village Voice is particularly good. The wider analysis of the relationships within the band and the band's relevance to the outside world is extremely well put together.
There's also some great live footage, including the Hyde Park 1969 concert and the disaster of Altamont, and some hilarious Top Of The Pops stuff with Mick Jagger in a pink silk suit and multi-coloured baseball cap!
Finally, I'll just mention a wonderful visual sequence accompanied by Moonlight Mile from Sticky Fingers - it's really a beautiful piece of filmmaking to go with a superb Mick Taylor-driven song.
Highly recommended.

Question about "The Rolling Stones Mick Taylor Years" DVD
I got a good look at the photo because for some reason the DVD is actually out in a store at the mall here in Albany NY already. I don't know how or why it's on the shelves, but it is . Anyway, I agree, it does look like Ronnie, but it's Keith. You'll see it better when you find it at the store.
